Inter-Provincial Partners

Since its inception in 2010-2011, Safety in Schools has grown throughout Alberta. Expansion throughout other provinces has always been part of the long-term vision for Safety in Schools and in 2016 the first steps were taken toward making that vision a reality.

Our team was approached by the CEO of Service Hospitality (formerly the Service and Hospitality Safety Association) in 2016 to discuss incorporating Safety in Schools training into their young worker safety strategy.

Service Hospitality provides evaluation, consultation, and training to help employers in the represented industries improve their safety management systems, and works to proactively influence future workers (youth, immigrants, first nations, partners with abilities) to drive safety cultural change in Saskatchewan.

Beginning with a small pilot program in 2017, Safety in Schools is now available in 49 schools across 9 school districts in Saskatchewan, with the Service Hospitality team actively driving this growth.

Project Partners

In 2014, Safety in Schools was awarded our first Creative Sentencing project. We have since completed six projects funded through Creative Sentencing and two funded by the Alberta OHS Innovation & Engagement Grant program.

Partnerships with other organizations play a key role in the ongoing expansion of our online content and the development and delivery of our in-school speaking program.

As a member of the Alberta Common Ground Alliance (ABCGA), Safety in Schools is committed to developing and providing resources that will help our emerging workforce better understand their responsibility when it comes to safe digging.

We have produced two interactive, online resources in partnership with the ABCGA, funded by Innovation & Engagement Grants from Alberta OHS.

Digger’s Guide to Safe Bone Burying is our first foray into developing resources for elementary school-aged children. This online, interactive activity introduces kids to the basic concepts of safe digging and the need to CALL or CLICK before you dig.

The Hole You Dig: Ground Disturbance Gone Wrong was developed for our typical high school audience, but is appropriate for adults as well. This online course focuses on the widespread impact that digging gone wrong can have on the surrounding community, residents and businesses.
